Quilt A Thon - Last update for the evening....maybe

I finished up the rest of the Indian Hatchet blocks that I had cut out. I need to cut some more muslin before I can finish all of them.

I pressed and trimmed the other 2 inch HSTs. Another 35 or so.....Now I'm up to about 135 of them.

I got tired of the Indian Hatchet blocks, didn't want to cut more fabric tonight..... So, I moved on to the Everlasting Wreath blocks. I made another three of them tonight.

Now I have 10 of the 110 that I need to complete the top. (Only 9 are shown.) You see in this pic many of the fabrics repeat. They won't be placed close together when I assemble the quilt at some time. I just pull some fabrics out and I'll worry about placement down the road. I'll just keep sewing along until they are all done....someday!!! LOL

I'll be sewing more tomorrow unless Dear Older Daughter needs to be taken to the Dr. I don't like for her to drive herself when she's sick. She's a southern girl like her mom and has a tendency to faint when ill. I'm really hoping she's better tomorrow. She's had a fever and a really sore throat, aches and pains and has gone through 1/2 a box of Puff's Plus. Poor dear.....doesn't matter how old they are, you still can't stand to see your children suffer. She may have strep....again. Ughh. Poor thing.

Edited to add: Dear Older Daughter saw the Dr. on Monday, the 17th. She has Scarlet Fever. Not feeling well at all. She had a large shot of penicillin and is on antibiotics and aspirin therapy. Poor girl!

Happy Quilting!!!!!!!

The Everlasting Wreath blocks are so pretty. Traditional quilts with darker colors are a perfect combination.

I hope your daughter will feel better soon. She is so lucky to have a mother close by to take her to the doctor.
